It’s always best to recycle old phones so they don’t end up in landfill. Interestingly, over 90% of the materials used in phones and their accessories can be recovered and recycled to make new products.
How to recycle your old phone.
The best way to recycle your old phone is to take it to your nearest Vodafone store. If your phone is in Good Working Order you may be able to trade it in.
You can also recycle your phone through Mobile Muster, the Australian mobile industry’s official recycling scheme.
Why can’t I just throw my phone out?
Phones should never be thrown out. They're not biodegradable, and they contain some materials that can potentially harm the environment if not handled correctly at the end of a phone's useful life.
